Entrepreneurial journey of Friends Handicraft

We invite you to the 75th Last Thursdays with an Entrepreneur.

In this edition of the Last Thursdays, we have Nirjala Shrestha and Shanti Shrestha, Founders of Friends Handicraft as our chief guests.

Friend handicrafts is a social business with product line of 100% felt products. Over the past 13 years, the social business has grown from two of them to a team of 125 women. They offer jobs to economically-deprived women and wish to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship among them. In 2013, Friends Handicraft was awarded the prestigious recognition of Surya Nepal Asha Social Entrepreneurship Award. The duo were also felicitated at GEW 2014 for their contribution. At present, the organization exports various felt products to European countries and USA.

Here’s a video on how the duo is working to break boundaries.

The entrance fee is Rs. 50 for students and Rs. 100 for professionals, aspiring entrepreneurs and others. The doors close at 5:15 pm.

If you are unable to attend, you can also post some of your “relevant” questions to the Guest speaker. Post your questions here! We will select some of the questions and ask them on your behalf in the event .
